"Ajax are tough opponents, but we hope to be able to get through. It'll be an open tie and we'll see two fine games because they like to play good football and they won't sit back in their own half,” said the Belgian goalkeeper.

“They will not just defend, we'll see two good matches. Hopefully we can win. We'll have to concentrate, defend well and hurt them when we can.”

The stopper, who previously played for Chelsea, says there is pressure on him at Real Madrid, but that’s not too different from elsewhere.

“There’s always pressure and here at Real Madrid it’s the same. I don’t think it changes that much from goal to goal,” he added.

“You know you're at the best club in the world, the biggest, and there are a lot of people who watch Real Madrid. You know there are lots of eyes on the game but that doesn’t change being a goalkeeper for Real Madrid, Chelsea or other teams.”
